Not one, but two trips into the city. That’s about my annual quota right there. I don’t make the trip in very often.
The first trip was to the Powerhouse Museum to see the Harry Potter exhibition. Here we are approaching the ANZAC Bridge. Photos taken on my iPhone.
Oh yeah, that’s 60 kilometres per hour, not miles, for those who were wondering…
This bridge isn’t the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, but I quite like it. You can see Sydney Tower in the bottom left hand quadrant of the above picture.
We had to book a specific time to see the exhibit, so we hung out for a bit in one of the open spaces at the museum.
The exhibit was borderline OK. The kids liked it, but I think is wasn’t worth the $$$ or the trip. Some people flew to Sydney to see this. I am glad I didn’t do that. Not being a super huge HP fan, it wasn’t my thing. What was interesting was looking at the costumes and seeing how they were made and what materials they used. It was also kinda fun to see how little Harry and Hermione were when the first film was made and how much they grew for the last.

I had a new logo designed for Pinetree Cottage Quilting and made over my website. I had new business cards printed and they arrived today. I love them!!!
We have been making pizzas. GF vegetarian pizza for me. I have never liked any meat apart from chicken on a pizza. Yum.
On Thursday night, hubby and I went to the State Theatre (in the city) to see Tim Minchin. I love his humour and outlook on life. I know he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. I don’t care, I really enjoyed the show.
The State Theatre is very ornate inside. There is a strict no photo policy inside, darn it. Lots of design inspiration in there. We were in the front row of the mezzanine floor. Excellent seats! The tickets were my xmas present to myself.
I am also back at work quilting. This is my first all over of the year. The custom quilt I am working on is going into a magazine, so no pictures allowed. It is very modern and fun to quilt
